Sometimes humerous sometimes heartbreaking a woman leaves everything she knows to leave her home and family and re discover herself. This is about the journey of one woman and the issues of the heart that transform all women. A good read for those of us over the age of 50 that are feeling old!
Through journal entries and letters, we travel with Nan, a woman who left home to find herself and, in doing so, finds her way home.
Another sweet, touching E. Berg book, with a main character I can relate to.
Elizabeth Berg uses letters and diary entries to tell the story of a woman coming to terms with her past and to explore the reasons for the lose of her self-esteem. A "mid-life coming of age" book every woman can relate to and will want to share with her friends. A thought-provoking, easy and fast read!
I took this book out of the library after reading a summary in the Isabella (wonderful books and spirit lifting products) catalog. As my husband was driving home I was reading the back cover.. Oh my goodness, why didn't just by myself a copy? I was hooked before I even read it and it didn't disappoint me. Now I buy all of Berg's books from Isabella when they list them. I also buy copies of this one to give to all my friends as we move from 30 something to 40... "I am on a trip. I needed all of a suddent to go, without saying where, because I don't know where. I know this is not like me. I know that. But please believe me, I am safe and I am not crazy, I felt as though if I didn't do this I wouldn't be safe and I would be crazy. And can you believe this? I love you."
Wow. Its a great read and all your girlfriends will love it too.
This is just a great unexpected fun book - I think any woman who has a family & all the responsibilites that come with it has thought about just getting in a car & driving- with no idea where you are heading. I passed this along to my sister & think every woman who reads it should do the same!!!
